26th October – 4th November in Vrsac, Serbia

The 15th Memorial Bora Kostic was held on 26th October – 4th November in Vrsac, the place of Kostic’s birth. Nikola Sedlak and Stelios Halkias preserved the lead held throughout the tournament and cut the ribbon together with six points after 9 rounds. Ultra-talented GM Boban Bogosavljevic finished on shared third with already established Grandmasters Kamil Miton and Evgeny Vorobiov. Serbia’s Olympiad players Milos Perunovic and Aleksandar Kovacevic ended up on the bottom, causing troubled thoughts to the team captain Moma Vucicevic.
